hi there, I have a 1963 vnb vespa (see following post):
and havnt done much with it, however I have a problem that I would like some advice on. it was starting well with a couple of kicks a couple of months ago, until it started to play up - I like to kick it over now and again just to blow the cobwebs out.
it was firing, running for about 3 seconds, then cutting out, and from there it wouldnt start again.
now - it doesnt start at all, regardless what I try.
I have had the plug out and cleaned it up, checked for a spark against the engine and all looks good.
I have taken the air filter off, and put a cap of fuel straight into the carb (just in case the fuel tap was a bit wonky), still nothing.
im not sure what to try next really, I would be happy if I got a single fire out of it at the moment, but it seems dead.
I intend to do a full resto on it, including an engine rebuild, but like I say, it would be nice just to get a fire out of it in the meantime to keep me happy
can anyone help me get this puppy running again
